what do people normally do on xmas day?

Hi everyone

We are looking at going to Orlando next Xmas for the 1st time and I was wondering what to plan for xmas day. From checking post it seems the parks will be mega busy! What other options are there?

thanks

Resort Hopping at Disney

The Resorts are Beautiful at Christmas

Be sure to book a Chistmas Day Dinner 180 days in advance ( for Disney World Park or Resort Restaurants ) the nicer Restaurants book up fast

Christmas is a Wonderful and Festive time to go but All Parks ( Disney, Universal, Seaworld etc ) will be Crazy Crowded the whole week so make a plan that includes getting to any of them at least an hour before opening

Just an idea but if you are intending on doing Discovery Cove at all on this trip, i think xmas day would be perfect. They only have set numbers each day so it wont be busy like the parks and would be a fantastic relaxing day :-)

It is a SW park based around swimming with dolphins. Very pricy, but some love it.

Resort hopping is traveling from resort to resort at Disney(using their trainsportation makes ti easy) to see the amazing decorations each resort puts up. TheBoardwalk has miniatures trains;theGF has as life sized gingerbread house which sells baked goods,the Yacht and Beach Club has a little merry go round-all the Disney resorts have gorgeous Christmas trees and other decorations. DTD too. Its fun to just go around on the monorail and boats to see what each resort has-if you can into one for a meal or afternoon tea at the GF-highly recomended.

We usually go to Sea World on Christmas Day -- super festive and a great park for a multigenerational group. Their hours are usually a little shorter on Christmas. This park seems less crowded than the Disney ones on this holiday.

Will the resorts have their Christmas decorations up already before Thanksgiving? You make them sound so lovely, I hope so - since we'll be there before Thanksgiving and leaving soon after!
